Precambrian

Precambrian - Precambrian - Precambrian geology: By international agreement, Precambrian time is divided into the Archean Eon (occurring between roughly 4.0 billion years ago and 2.5 billion years ago) and Proterozoic Eon (occurring between 2.5 billion and 541 million years ago). After the Precambrian, geologic time intervals are commonly subdivided on the basis of the fossil record.

lithosphere | Definition & Facts | Britannica

Lithosphere, rigid, rocky outer layer of the Earth, consisting of the crust and the solid outermost layer of the upper mantle extends to a depth of about 60 miles (100 km). It is broken into about a dozen separate, rigid blocks, or plates (see plate tectonics).Slow convection currents deep within the mantle, generated by radioactive heating of the interior, are believed to cause the lateral ...

A second cycle of transtension in the Early Devonian formed the Buchan Rift and smaller basins, into which volcanics and/or marine sediments were deposited. In western Victoria, numerous I-type granites were intruded. In eastern Victoria, mixed 1-, S-and A-type granites were intruded; several broke through to the surface and formed calderas.

The greenstone belts young westwards from 3.0-2.9 Ga in eastern and central Karelia, to 2.80-2.75 Ga in western Karelia, and 2.65 Ga in eastern Finland, consistent with the progressive westward accretion of successive island arcs, above eastward-dipping subduction zones. The gneiss and granite are less well understood than the greenstone belts.
